Away in a Manger

M came home singing Christmas carols several weeks ago and I thought it was the cutest thing ever.  I soon learned that her class would be holding Christmas Carols and Cookies in their classroom one afternoon where they would sing for their parents.  I could not have been more tickled.

So the day finally came (a couple of weeks ago) and I'll admit, I didn't know what to expect.  Would two-year-olds really get up there and sing Christmas songs in front of a crowd?  And when I realized they'd be marching in after the parents were seated, I thought for sure the kids would freak out when they saw that crowd.  Would the kids see their parents and run over?  Would they be shy?  Would they really sing that whole time?  But most of all, would they SIT STILL?

And it was about what I expected.  A couple of kids saw their parents and ran right to them.  At one point they were all in their own little worlds (thankfully not at the same time).  A few got up and walked around during the program.  I would have been worried if they didn't act like the two-year-olds they were up there.  So I was relieved (and of course extremely tickled) when they did all this.

When the class walked in and M noticed all the parents, she immediately looked for us (DK had a game, so it was just me).  I could see the relief on her face when she found me.  I was worried she'd run over and want to sit with me during the program, but no, she was a big girl.  I waved at her and she went right to her seat.  They sang several songs including Jingle Bells, Jesus Loves the Little Children, and Twelve Days of Christmas.  M's part was "and a partridge in a pear tree..." in which she would hold up the picture of the partridge in the pear tree.  Cutest.  Thing.  Ever.

I recorded a the whole thing, of course, so I'll share a snippet (of them singing Away in a Manger).  M is on the left wearing the red and white polka dot snowman dress.

It was just so adorable, and I commend the wonderful teachers for having the love and patience to do this.  It was a treat for the parents, for sure.

Hope everyone's having a great week!
